Saturday, Dec. 17th @9AM-3PM CST
701 Tillery St. Austin, TX
You move the sled and every yard traveled will be matched in $$$ by your individual sponsors.
More individual sponsors gathered will mean more money accumulated by your participation.
In other words…
Total Sled Yards x $$$ matched w/ every yard = Sled Money Generated
Sled Money Generated x Total Number of Sponsors = Total Money Generated per Participant
If you have one sponsor (who agreed to match a dime for every yard) and you move 500 yards total with the sled during your 30 min time slot then…
Your sponsor will donate a total of $50(500 yards x 10 cents = $50.00)
If you have 5 individual sponsors who agreed to similar terms, then you will raise a total of $250
5(500 yards x 10 cents) = $250.00
10 individual sponsors who agreed to similar terms will amount to a total of $500
10(500 yards x 10 cents) = $500.00
Note that these sponsors will agree to donate a negotiated amount of $$$ per every yard that the participant travels on the sled.
We recommend asking sponsors to match 5-10 cents of donation per yard that you travel with the sled but you can also potentially win the challenge by getting only one sponsor who donates $1 a yard.
Ultimately, the end-goal is to raise money for kids in need so we encourage the application of creativity and strategy in order to win the challenge!
Well other than feeling the giant dump of serotonin in your system after doing something hard in the name of helping out children in need….
There will also be prizes for the top performers!
All participants will receive a Special Santa Sled Challenge Shirt and swag bag.
All sponsors will receive an emailed Perk Package and special recognition as a donor for the event.
You can sponsor a participant who will be physically attending the event via the link here or alternatively make a donation directly to EVERYCHILDTEXAS.ORG
The meaning of this event is to leverage the holiday spirit and apply the physicality that we all cherish so much towards a cause that might even be more meaningful than our own individual fitness goals.
If you have ever been to Squatch Frontier Fitness before, then you are likely aware of how prevalent the application of Sled training is. The gym is literally surrounded by various Sled setups on almost every flank.
There is good reason for the prevalence of this style of training as it is highly applicable for almost every demographic due its versatile, therapeutic, and highly effective nature.
If you can walk from your car, through the parking lot and into the gym, then you can train with sleds and reap many of the benefits along the way.

That said, there are some unique groups of individuals such as children with disabilities that may not be able to experience the direct benefits of Sled Training.
The vision of this event is to utilize the work performed on the Sled as a vessel to help children with disabilities.
All proceeds raised will be delivered to EVERYCHILDTEXAS.ORG on Christmas Day.
EVERYCHIDTEXAS.ORG finds ways to support family life for children with disabilities who would otherwise grow up in facilities. Their mission is to give all children the gift of growing up in a safe, loving, and nurturing family with whatever support is needed for families and children to thrive.
Taken directly from their mission statement:
⁃ We help families explore family options to facility care for their children with disabilities to live at home or to live with a support family if they can’t live at home.
⁃ We lead permanency planning for children living in Texas nursing facilities.
⁃ We recruit and prepare support families for children who cannot live at home.
⁃ We assist service provider organizations to increase their capacity to provide family-based options.
⁃ We provide training and technical assistance to family groups and community organizations on family supports for children with disabilities.
⁃ We develop educational materials and tools on family-based alternatives to institutional care.
⁃ We work with state policy-makers and decision-makers to remove barriers and build better support for families.
All in all they operate under the belief that every child needs a family, and that there is a family for every child.
